Well, it seems that Korea is trying to open up to talks with the U.S. It's going to be interesting to see if Bush bites. I think that the U.S stance against N.Korea has been pretty stringent.

I'd honestly like to see the U.S at least enter into some type of negotiations with North Korea. The people of Korea have suffered long enough due to Kim Jong Il's and the United States' standoff. It will certainly be somewhat entertaining to watch developments in this issue over the next few weeks.

BEIJING (AP) -- International negotiators reached a tentative agreement on initial steps toward North Korea's nuclear disarmament, the first concrete progress after more than three years of talks, the U.S. envoy said early Tuesday.
The draft agreement, worked out at the latest round of six-nation talks on the North's nuclear program, contained commitments on disarmament and energy assistance along with "initial actions" to be taken by certain deadlines, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said. He said working groups will be set up, hopefully in a month, laying out a framework for dealing with regional tensions.
